They Really Thought They Were Free: Nazi Germans

And they did...

Read more of this sad, historic, WWI period at "The Third Reich: They Thought They Were Free," by Milton Mayer. Of German and Jewish descent, he describes how his life went from a "decent man," to total Nazi. He would later become an American journalist.

"Kudos" to RCD, the Web Host for the "Third Reich Roundtable" web site.

DID YOU KNOW: Time Magazine named Adolf Hitler as "Man of the Year" in 1938 because he was "applauded wildly and ecstatically by most Germans." And added, "Hitler became in 1938 the greatest threatening force that the democratic, freedom-loving world faces."

"First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out.
Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out.
Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew so I did not speak out.
And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me."

Paster Martin Niemoller ~ 1945
